1 EXPERIENCE THE CROSS

2 Romans 6: What should we say then? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may multiply? 2.Absolutely not! How can we who died to sin still live in it? 3.Or are you unaware that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?

3 4.Therefore we were buried with Him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in a new way of life. 5.For if we have been joined with Him in the likeness of His death, we will certainly also be in the likeness of His resurrection. 6.For we know that our old self was crucified with Him in order that sin’s dominion over the body may be abolished, so that we may no longer be enslaved to sin,

4 7.since a person who has died is freed from sin’s claims. 8.Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him, 9.cause we know that Christ, having been raised from the dead, no longer dies. Death no longer rules over Him. 10. For in that He died, He died to sin once for all; but in that He lives, He lives to God. 11. So, you too consider yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Holman Christian Standard Bible

6 Sin’s Infestation of My Physical Body

7 Summary  Our bodies are effected by the fall in the Garden of Eden  Even after we become Christians we still age, suffer disease, and die.  Our body's natural desires and instincts have malfunctioned.  Our instincts make us more susceptible to gluttony, anger, and improper sexual behavior.  This is not to say, “I am not a sinner, it is only my body.”.  It is not to say our body is, itself, evil. My body is created by God – good but fallen.

8  Vs. 12 “Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, so that you obey its desires.”  8:13 “But if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”  8:23 “We also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.” >

9  Vs. 12 “Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, so that you obey its desires.”  8:13 “But if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”  8:23 “We also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.”

10 HOW WE EXPERIENCE THE CROSS

11 1. Jesus is Our Representative

12 Jesus Is My Representative Substitute  Jesus was acting on my behalf as my substitute and as my representative.  He bore my guilt before God  He was punished in my place  His death fulfilled my obligation to the Law of God; I am no longer obligated to it. George Wyatt

13 Jesus Acted On My Behalf  Romans 8:3-4 “What the law could not do since it was limited by the flesh, God did. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending His own Son in flesh like ours under sin’s domain, and as a sin offering, in order that the law’s requirement would be accomplished in us…”

14 I Am Dead to the Law  7:4 “Therefore, my brothers, you also were put to death in relation to the law through the crucified body of the Messiah, so that you may belong to another—to Him who was raised from the dead—that we may bear fruit for God”  7:6 “But now we have been released from the law, since we have died to what held us, so that we may serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old letter of the law.”

15 2. My Spiritual Union With Christ

16 Our Union with Christ  Vs. 4 “We were buried with Him by baptism into death”  Vs. 5 “For if we have been joined with Him in the likeness of His death”  Vs. 6 “For we know that our old self was crucified with Him”  Vs. 8 “Now if we died with Christ…” >

17  Vs. 4 “We were buried with Him by baptism into death”  Vs. 5 “For if we have been joined with Him in the likeness of His death”  Vs. 6 “For we know that our old self was crucified with Him”  Vs. 8 “Now if we died with Christ…” Our Union with Christ

18 The Cross Ends My Old Life  Vs. 1-2 “What should we say then? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may multiply? Absolutely not! How can we who died to sin still live in it?” Illus: Jake DeShazzer

19 The Cross Breaks The Power of Sin  Vs. 6 “For we know that our old self was crucified with Him in order that sin’s dominion over the body may be abolished, so that we may no longer be enslaved to sin”  Vs. 7 “Since a person who has died is freed from sin’s claims.”  8:12 “So then, brothers, we are not obligated to the flesh to live according to the flesh”

20 Augustine  Adam before the Fall: Able to sin  Non-Christians: Not able not to sin  Christians: Able not to sin  Christians in Heaven: Not able to sin

21 3. Living in Light of the Truth

22 Take Your Death Into Account  Vs. 11 “So, you too consider yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” >

23 A. Take Your Death Into Account  Vs. 11 “So, you too consider yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” To reckon, count, compute, calculate; to take into account. This word deals with reality. If I take into consideration that my bank account has $25 in it, it has $25 in it. I am not just wishing it so. This word deals with facts.

24 Reckon What This Means?  He is not saying that sin has been eradicated out of me.  He is not commanding me to “die to sin”  He is not saying that “reckoning” (or “considering”) myself dead to sin actually makes me dead to sin in practice.  He is not saying we should pretend something is true that is not true.  It means… Realize that you are already dead to sin because Jesus is dead to sin and you are in union with Him. Stuart BriscoeEagle

25 B. Rely on the Spirit  8:13 “But if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.” >

26 B. Rely on the Spirit  8:13 “But if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.” >

27 John Piper “Kill sin by the Spirit… The children of God hate sin. The children of God have the values and priorities and preferences and tastes of their Father. They are chips off the old block, as it were. And the reason they share these traits of God their Father is because they have his Spirit who… gives them the new tastes and new preferences and the new values and the new pleasures and the new sadness. And so the evidence of our sonship is: Do we fight sin in our lives, or do we feel blasé about sin in our lives?”

28 C. Offer Yourself to God  Vs. 13 “And do not offer any parts of it [your body] to sin as weapons for unrighteousness. But as those who are alive from the dead, offer yourselves to God, and all the parts of yourselves to God as weapons for righteousness.” >

29 C. Offer Yourself to God  Vs. 13 “And do not offer any parts of it [your body] to sin as weapons for unrighteousness. But as those who are alive from the dead, offer yourselves to God, and all the parts of yourselves to God as weapons for righteousness.” Offer: Put at the disposal of. “Present tense, be presenting, denotes the daily habit, the giving of the hand, the tongue, etc.”—Vincent's Word Studies James Calvert Fiji
